Eastfield Medical Centre is a GMS training practice situated on a large housing estate on the outskirts of Scarborough. There are major housing developments ongoing and planned in our area leading to a projected increase in list size to over 12,000 patients in the forthcoming years. We currently have 8,000 patients.

We are initially looking for maternity cover from July 2018. We have three GP’s leaving for maternity leave so sessions are negotiable. We are an expanding thriving practice and we are potentially looking to expand further so permanent positions may become available in the future.

The area we serve is very varied from high levels of deprivation to rural villages. We have a high level of morbidity and chronic disease that means every day is challenging and stimulating.

We provide a combination of booked surgeries and also a sit and wait surgery. This gives patients flexibility at times of urgent need, and also allows for continuity of care and follow up. We have a strong administration and nursing team to ensure that routine chronic disease management work is dealt with efficiently. GPs with particular interest e.g. joint injection, minor surgery, dermatology, contraception, mental health and substance misuse will have time set aside for specific clinics dealing with these problems.

We have a strong ethos of learning and education being involved in Hull York Medical School training, Postgraduate GP Training, Nurse Training at undergraduate level, mentoring for fellow professional e.g. Pharmacists, nurses undertaking prescribing qualifications and administrative staff development including apprenticeships.

We use EMISweb and have tailored the system to fit in with our patterns of work. Our Data Quality Manager was previously an EMIS trainer and we can provide excellent training and support in using the system at all levels.
